    Pros

    Great perks, dynamic environment with free snacks & drinks. Most of the staff that don't have direct working relationship with your role are friendly.

    Cons

    Guess working in Asia culture, there is no work life balance particular for few of the local teams especially if you report to local managers. They tend to look for quantities instead of qualities and low employee autonomy which somehow drag to a mentally/physically tired status. Low flexibility on working hours whereas few of my teammates work till mid-night at home but still claimed to be late when arrive... office at 9:30am. Particular teams follow their manager's working hours (12 hrs/day) because their managers encourage the long hour style as equal to hard working. Overall is quite a micro-management style on every aspect , like a 'Tiger-mom' style. We do not mind the work-loads, but need to be result oriented and serve the purpose efficiently.

    Advice to Management

    Local team's managers should embrace the Expedia culture (work life balance), be open minded, provide autonomy for staff to growth. HR should train and provide co. culture training to entire co. so that everyone embrace the same culture and reduce the turn over rate in that office.

    Pros

    Great OTA, one of the giant. Company as a whole treat employee as assets, so benefit is good.

    Cons

    Horrifying local HR culture. Despite the company trying really hard to maintain its great value, local HR in Hong Kong has ruined it all. HR has made the working environment and local culture suxks. As HR is the dominating power, our messages can never passed to management. It is a very political environment to work at.

    Advice to Management

    Internal surveys to all employees, be open to changes. Look into HR performance, because local HR shapes company culture.
